As a disclaimer, I have not played it, but have rather spent the past few nights watching my boyfriend of several years play through it. I can honestly say that the game is just as fun to watch as it is to play. The two distinct worlds of the game are reality and the nightmare. Reality consists of beautifully orchestrated cutscenes and anime segments where Vincent, a down-trodden, generally pathetic man-boy stumbles through his life. What makes the real world stand on its own when compared to the horror of the nightmare is its ability to accurately and humanely treat with its actors; all of the people Vincent meets are human, not characters, with human feelings, emotions, and reactions. The writing is top-notch, and the translation perfectly suited to the American audience in its ability to tag our euphemisms and sayings without sounding thrown in.
In the nightmare, Vincent is rendered down to his underwear and forced to climb through an increasingly complex series of puzzles. You pull and push, slide and jump, dangle and haul your way through each level, working in three dimensions to try and reach the top and salvation. Along the way you are helped by your fellow travellers, who will give you hints and techniques. Interestingly enough your actions in the rest areas have an effect on the survival of your fellow sheep--ignore one random character too long, and they will disappear from the bar and the world entirely.
What has struck me the most about Catherine is how well it plays with my mind and emotions.Read more ›
The Good: This game is different. It broaches a subject matter not common in games, the graphics are anime/cel-shaded. (Like Valkyria Chronicles or Borderlands, if you're not sure what that is.) The story is interesting, and the main character is a pretty likable guy. From what I understand, the choices you make in the game drive you towards one of the girls and several different endings, and it's actually similar to the paragon/renegade system used in Mass Effect 2, except there's only one meter for both girls.
The Bad: The puzzle gameplay is frustrating. Honestly, I don't mind hard games, or complicated puzzles, but I'd like enough time to do them. With Catherine, you often have a giant nightmare racing up to smash you, so you end up retrying a lot. Also, you have a limited amount of continues. (but don't worry, you can get more) Then again, when you finally do get it, there's a sense of accomplishment that you won't get from a lot of the way too easy games that are on the market today. Honestly I don't think it's way too hard-just a little. Another simple tip that helped me alot-talk to your fellow sheep. You can move your meter and you learn new strategies for getting up the blocks.
EDIT: Now that I'm farther into the game, I'd like to add a little more detail. There's more to the levels than the blocks slowly falling, or some giant horror chasing you, you'll also have to contend with enemies smacking you around, boss special attacks, (so far I've had getting knocked down, and getting my controls switched to backwards), and trap blocks.Read more ›
The Bad: Infuriating puzzle levels, not much gameplay outside of that, a little on the short side, control issues
I usually regret playing Atlus games because they are frustrating and difficult experiences. The games are usually excellent, but the difficulty always leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. I have only been able to complete a couple of Atlus games due to this. Catherine is no different, but shouldn't be taken lightly. RPG fans stay away. If you just want to experience the story go on YouTube. This is for hardcore puzzle fans only. I mean the hardest of core puzzle gamers. This game will leave you infuriated, angry, full of rage, and probably with a few smashed controllers. The game is plagued with issues, but for some reason there's the story that makes you want to see the end. Thankfully the game isn't very long. Just prepare the video walkthroughs because you will need them.
This experience is coming from someone who hates these kind of puzzles. This game is completely to taste. I hate block pushing puzzles, but here we are with a very deep game that includes these. The first three stages aren't that bad. Starting at stage 4 things get frustrating and forget about progressive difficulty. First off, the story is very engaging and it's a love story. A man named Vincent Brooks is in love with a girl named Katherine and she wants him to marry her. Suddenly a sultry seductress named Catherine comes along and somehow Vincent wakes up with her naked next to him. The rest of the game is him trying to hide each Katherine from each other.
The story gets tense in spots like any well written drama.Read more ›
